This project involves developing a computer-based stimulating adventure game aimed at enhancing the working memory skills of children with developmental disorders such as dyslexia and attention deficit disorder (ADD). Weakness in working memory is a key characteristic of dyslexics and children with ADD. The software is comprised of games that teach well-defined strategies established in the field of cognitive psychology. The main problem that this project aims to address is the lack of software systems that are designed to develop learning skills of Arabic-speaking children, particularly people with Dyslexia and ADD. In this paper, we describe our design approach and the insights gained from involving users in different roles.
